Notes:

This creeping weed/grass loves moisture and spreads like crazy throughout hotter months in an area of my bermuda that sees a lot of moisture due to drainage. Hard to kill with broadleaf killer. Not sure if it’s a grassy weed? Would like to get ID and suggested treatment before it gains foothold again this summer.

    You people with your kill everything… and ask questions later approaches…

    Your buttonweed could well be hosting a nice batch of tersa sphinx caterpillars…

    “You people” with your sanctimonious response …. I am going to eradicate this weed pronto… and ask questions later… As you allude to…

    A treatment of Monument should do the trick. Either way, thanks and Cheers! I’ll hug the caterpillar if I see it, for you….
